Nickelodeon is bringing back Rugrats for a TV revival and "live-action" movie

The best thing about today’s reboot-happy culture is that none of us ever really need to grow up and move on from the things we liked as children, and nothing has ever illustrated that more clearly than Nickelodeon announcing today that it’s bringing back Rugrats. In a press release, the network announced that it’s…

We’re probably going to get the first trailer for director James Wan’s Aquaman movie later this week during Comic-Con, so to try and go fishing for a little bit of hype, Wan has shared the first teaser poster for the film on social media.

Theory: Split takes place in the same universe as The Sixth Sense, too

Not only was Split the first M. Night Shyamalan movie in a number of years that didn’t completely suck, but it was also the first to draw a direct link to another film in the director’s oeuvre. In the film’s post-credits scene, we see Bruce Willis reprise his role as David Dunn from Unbreakable and name check Samuel…
